From Sarah Toedt’s Springtime Gardens catalog, 1929: DOXA- (Olive Giant H. M. A. I. S. 1928) Intermediate — The most discussed variety in our garden on “Garden Club Day” last year. Huge flowers of heavy texture with spreading falls of pale olive green, heavily reticulated with red purple on haft. Falls edged with tints of lavender and yellow.
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: DOXA (H. Sass '29) E 24" (Unknown). This variety has an Aril look and is usually considered as belonging in this group, although as far as we know there is no definite proof of its Onco make-up. The olive-yellow flowers which have shadings of green and lavender are strange and interesting rather than beautiful. It is the seed parent of 'Mohresque' and possibly useful in a 'green' breeding program. H.M.'28 $.60
